As ever with the numericals it's finding an initial toehold that's most tricky but then everything worked out logically. Always surprised to get through the gridfill for one of these without having to unpick anything. Time to unfry the brains and then I'll try my hand at the sequences.

A PHENOMENAL construction and the properties were amazing. How does one even begin to set a numerical puzzle with such depth?

This has to be one of the most enjoyable numericals I've encountered in the Listener.

Elap, many thanks. More please of this quality.

Contained all of Elap's trademarks from the novel way of finding the starting set of numbers to the endgame. Thanks.
The grid entry was straightforward but putting the sequences together was the icing on the cake - great fun and not as difficult as I had feared from the preamble.

My all-time favourite Numerical is a circular one from a few years back but I would rate this one very highly too.

Thanks Elap

Endgame was not as daunting as feared. Very enjoyable and a rewarding sense of achievement at the end.
Looked horrendous, turned out very enjoyable. Good carefully worded preamble and no ambiguity. A many-layered and satisfying puzzle. Thanks, Elap!
Just got around to this one - many thanks Elap!

I just wrote myself a little program to look into these sequences more, and they're fascinating to study. I can see variations on this theme in future puzzles, I'm sure.
